"The plot moves along briskly with romantic tension, sex-positive moments, comedic beats, and Madeline’s determination to save the store[...]A solid rom-com."
"Rodkey offers realistically mutable characterization; though prickly Madeline sometimes fails to fully consider the consequences of her actions, her choices deepen the impact of her growth. The You’ve Got Mail–style romance is well executed in this debut, only improved by Rodkey’s cognizant depiction of the financial struggles of bricks-and-mortar bookstores."
"This lighthearted page-turner is recommended for all young adult collections."
"Last Chance Books is the perfect funny, fluffy romance for a summer read."
"LAST CHANCE BOOKS is not only a romance: it’s also about family. The one you grow up with and the one you share blood with...If you’re looking for a fast-paced, entertaining read filled with bookish feels, enemies-to-lovers relationship and amazing banter, I encourage you to pick up LAST CHANCE BOOKS."
